Jacking Beam

Class IV, Class VII


Make working on raised vehicles even more accessible with the MOT jacking beams from John Bean, which are a safe and versatile part of your testing bay.

There are two jacking beam options available, 2000kg for class IV and 2800kg for class VII.

They feature a two-stage mechanical safety lock and telescopic finger guards to prevent accidental injury.

The beams have spring-loaded flat arms with roller bearings and when unloaded these support the weight of the beam, allowing the entire unit to run smoothly along the pit lane or vehicle lift, but when loaded they locate the unit firmly.


  • Double acting manual pump reduces effort required to raise the vehicle
  • Support arms specifically designed for lift (different options available for four post, low profile, scissor lift and pit requirements)
  • Three position mechanical lock system
  • Optional high-rise adaptors available
